Old and Rare Bookshop in Chiswick's oldest retail shop

Established in 1968, our family-run business has now passed to a second generation of booksellers. We are based in the oldest shop on the Chiswick High Road, which dates from the late 18th century. We are linked to our sister shop at 95 Bell Street over by Marylebone Station; on our website,, you will find a comprehensive database of over 7000 books from our catalogue. We specialise in antiquarian books, fine bindings, children's illustrated and first editions, as well as a general stock leaning to literature and the arts. We are happy to bring any books on our catalogue to the Chiswick shop to view. We also buy in these areas.

Lovely old bookshop




A lovely old bookshop. I am amazed that places like this still exist! An interesting selection of nice old editions. Some beautiful leather bindings, and illustrated books.
